Justina, inspections can vary. It just depends on what you want done. Do you want a whole home inspection like structural, plumbing, electrical etc.? Do you also want a termite inspection? What about a Radon Inspection? Like Maureen stated private inspectors are not licensed in the state of Michigan. Look for one you are comfortable with. You might want to not just ask how much they charge, but what their experience is. (Sometimes cost has to do with the size of the house as well.)

No matter what I would get one you are comfortable with. I am not as excited about the certifications as Maureen shared. I had a major problem with an inspector last year that was a member of one of those groups.

I hope this information helps!

Justina, Links to the certified inspectors referred by Maureen are available on the website below. Make sure the inspector knows a little about the home you will be purchasing and verify they can inspect and return a report to you by email within the time allowed in your contract.

Buyer's inspections can vary significantly in cost and even in the scope of work. There is no set cost and in Michigan inspectors are not licensed, though some may have builder's licenses. I usually recommend that my clients look for an inspector who is a member of ASHI or NASHI.
